Transform your smile with dental veneers
Have you always dreamed about having a movie star smile? What you may not realize is that a perfect smile can be within reach. Dental veneers are a cosmetic solution that addresses a wide variety of imperfections. The thin strips of lustrous porcelain can completely transform the appearance of your smile, leaving everyone wondering how you have such perfect teeth. At Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental Care in Burbank, California, we combine an artistic touch with dental precision to craft custom-made veneers for our patients.
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin strips of porcelain that are custom designed and fabricated to attach to the front of your teeth, giving your smile an instant upgrade. Porcelain is a durable ceramic material that closely resembles tooth enamel, making it the perfect choice for a natural-looking solution. The shade of porcelain can be chosen to match your desired level of whiteness. We have years of experience helping patients choose the perfect shade based on skin tone and other facial features. Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic solutions, addressing many imperfections such as:
- Closing small gaps between teeth
- Fixing broken or chipped teeth
- Improving the symmetry of misshapen teeth
- Hiding permanent stains or discoloration.
The process for placing dental veneers
After your consultation, we can begin the process of placing veneers which will require two separate visits to the office. We’ll prepare the teeth during the first visit by removing a small amount of enamel. That allows us to place the veneers on the front of the teeth without them sticking out or appearing bulky.
We’ll then take impressions of the teeth and send them off to a high-quality laboratory to custom fabricate the veneers. Once your veneers are ready, you will return to the office for a final fitting, where we check the fit and appearance before bonding them to the front of your teeth. Veneers can be used on a single tooth or all the way up to all visible teeth within the smile.
Candidates for porcelain veneers
Veneers are an excellent option for individuals with healthy teeth and gums who want to enhance the appearance of their teeth. If you currently have tooth decay or other oral health issues, those will need to be treated before receiving veneers.

Before & After Results
This patient had disproportionately larger front teeth and gaps along all 6 upper front teeth. Veneers help to reshape teeth to the correct proportions as well as help close spaces. A total of 8 veneers were done on the uppers to get the perfect smile. He later said we “Changed his life!!”
This patient wanted to straighten his front teeth and close the small open bite that he had. A set of 6 veneers were done for the front teeth to straighten and close the front open bite. Group function/guidance was kept in this case. The results were incredible and imperceivable from natural teeth.
This patient case was a combination of Orthodontics, Implants, and finally Veneers and Implant crowns. Orthodontics was used to create the natural space of two missing front teeth. Two implants were placed at the time orthodontics finished. And finally, porcelain restorations (veneers and crowns) were done to complete the smile. The patient said “This was the smile he always dreamed of”
In this case, my patient knew his smile needed improvement. As he described it, his teeth left a gap when he smiled. Overall, his teeth were somewhat short, and they tilted inward. With minimal preparations, I added veneers that lengthened his front 8 teeth to the correct height/width and proclined them to remove the ‘inward’ look.
